Default Electrics gone mad

I found my car this evening with a dead battery. I suspect I forgot to turn off the power having sat for a few minutes with the radio on having turned the engine off first. RAC jump started it fine, but since then...
  • The headlights are stuck on - they go off when turning off the car, but when the car is on, turning the headlights on and off does nothing, nor does full beam.
  • Central locking doesn't work. The fob makes the indicatior lights go off, but the doors don't lock.

Any quick fixes or do I need to take it to the garage?

It's the newest Mazda 2, 2014+ I think

It may of been spiked when jump started.
Try disconnecting the battety for 10 minutes, reconnect it see what happens.
Otherwise take it to Mazda.
